Equalising products can be helpful when you have uneven skin tone or skin texture. An uneven skin texture is often due to dryness and insufficient exfoliation of the skin, and uneven skin tone may be due to a variety of skin conditions; for example, dark circles under the eyes, or redness and pigmentation.
Equalising products for uneven skin texture are exfoliators, such as AHA and BHA, which smooth out the skin and clean out pores. Complementing with serums or creams containing niacinamide that draw the entrance of pores closer together and thus give a fuller evening out effect. For acne you should use medicated products to prevent scarring. With uneven skin tone, look to luminous and lustre-giving ingredients such as arbutin, niacinamide and Vitamin C. You can also try products that both neutralise and provide an immediate effect - for example, a CC cream that contains both pigment and active ingredients that smoothes out skin tone. Green pigments neutralise redness and red and orange pigments neutralise dark spots.
